We were there too

The festival’s organic athmosphere is further emphasized by the village’s graphic scenery, as the aesthetic of the surroundings will become once again a source of inspiration for both the artists and the participants

For the very first time in Cyprus history, a blind student take part in the National parade with his teacher



When I read the news that a blind student will take part in the national parade I thought:

bravo to the lad

but when I went there to cover photographically the parade, I was not expecting that I would feel such emotion,

_MAR1570 _MAR1621


perhaps because everybody who watched the parade as you could believe that they he had gone only for Andreas.

Permanently applause and the world urges to Andreas touched by his effort.


Professor (Angelos Angelidis) that since last October helped this venture, begged me not to take pictures and that’s because there were even negative reactions, he told me sad that they said

that he do it for self-promotion


I asked Andreas why?, (why always there)

. he told me that he wanted this experience and why

. he wants to tell the whole world that everything can be done as long as you try,

. he wanted to tell people with disabilities to dare,

and finally how tired he is because almost every day people faced him like being sick

CYPRUS-LIMASSOL-NATIONAL PARADE-BLIND STUDENT _MAR1804_MAR1775 _MAR1766 _MAR1841 For me was a unique experience,

Andreas made me smile

Andreas inspire me

Andreas and this kind of people they are leaders and not followers

We need them

One evening..

One evening before two weeks, I found myself walking in Pallouriotissa neighborhood,

_FEB2099 _FEB2081_FEB2128 _FEB2095

I had a strange mood and a great need just to walk and make photos without a concept, just photos to clear my mind which has stuck

_FEB2085 _FEB2108

_FEB2118 _FEB2086

Always I loved this kind of neighborhoods the people are curious and knows the meaning of hospitality,

_FEB2134 _FEB2216

_FEB2130 _FEB2137

I found two teenagers playing there, in an abandoned square.

_FEB2146 _FEB2180

I was very suprised when I realized their game

_FEB2203 _FEB2167

One of them (Dani Amourri) filming his partner with an handmade tool for his mobile.

_FEB2150 _FEB2208

I asked from my new friend to send me what he got from his shootings with his mobile phone

so after when I had time I made this Video

The video I was made for them, for their inspiration,

(sorry if the result is not professionally under the international standards :-)

Maybe this will be a good inspiration for you, because for me it was

_FEB2103 _FEB2225 _FEB2262 _FEB2239

Till I arrived to my home, I continued the “shootings”

_FEB2250 _FEB2251

_FEB2264 The night came and unfortunately I didn’t have more time

I had to stop

Next time I’ll stay longer, a new chapter opened for me

A very good chapter

_FEB1185 _FEB1146 _FEB0026 _FEB0043

_FEB0136 _FEB0926

_FEB0112 _FEB0937

_FEB0885 _FEB0600

In recent years the foolproof metrisis scoop for me is the children and especially, my daughter

and has proved to me, without having to have special skills (analysis, measurements, surveys etc.)

that children are the toughest critics, without having any social Behaviour criteria

_FEB0731 _FEB0739

_FEB0852 _FEB0903

So I asked my daughter: “Have fun;;;”

I got no answer was dipped in confetti, soiled hands

and a laugh (Gosh this laughter)

_FEB0473 _FEB0286

At night the house was quiet, calm, would you say empty, my little sleeping, motionless (no entreaties and no constraint) and occasionally “snoring”.

_FEB0699 _FEB0719

_FEB0658 _FEB0398

This morning, within the spirit and joy, telling me without pausing her yesterday’s adventures …….

_FEB0416 _FEB0199

Yes, my baby had a good time …

_FEB0388 _FEB0370

The carnival succeeded :)

_FEB1013 _FEB0991

Well done, bravo, congratulations to all those who are tired and not unjustly,

_FEB0976 _FEB1128

next year (to us by God well) I will “get dressed”, I gonna let myself and I will playing

Lucky moments


In one of the most famous streets internationally, for the check point to occupied Cyprus,
for the battles that took place there a few years ago and now on its market value,
yesterday night a young group gave meaning and sound to passers
Two bouzoukis, a guitar, great voices, vivid youth, dancing, a little beer, a little crazy and it was great, they broke the monotony and routine of somewhat fashion street

_JUL0245 _JUL0269 _JUL0275 _JUL0319
_JUL0312 _JUL0343 _JUL0377 _JUL0389 _JUL0407 The show must go on…
